The Trongone Band
The Trongone Band
Rapidly gaining momentum with a sound that falls somewhere between southern Rock ‘n’ Soul and Americana Jam, The Trongone Band is turning heads and making an impact on the east coast music scene. Formed as a family and by brothers Andrew and Johnny with father John Sr. on bass, The Trongone Band enlisted much sought-after keyboardist Ben "Wolfe" White and quickly began packing various venues around Richmond, VA. With the addition of Wolfe, they entrenched theirfootprint on the city with a Thursday night residency at Cary Street Cafe, pushing the popular music room to maximum capacity for two straight years.

Spreading their musical wings, it wasn't long before The Trongone Band procured a devout fan base and began making their name in neighboring cities, including sell-out shows in Blacksburg and Harrisonburg. Recently the band brought on award-winning bassist Todd Herrington to solidify their touring lineup. Herrington adds a crucial dimension of deep pocket groove and funk to the already seasoned unit.

As a collaborative effort, the band is set to push forward touring the East Coast and preparing for their full length debut album. This four-piece ensemble may not all be related, but with a chemistry so emphatically discernible, it's fair to call them brothers.
The Vegabonds
The Vegabonds
With a swagger reminiscent of the Black Crowes and a tight musicianship that will have you drawing comparisons to everyone from Led Zeppelin to the Allman Brothers, Nashville-based rock band THE VEGABONDS are just getting started. A mix of different musical interests laid the groundwork for the band’s debut album, Dear Revolution, and its follow-up, Southern Sons.

Both albums received critical acclaim, and after multiple songs splashed onto independent music charts (“Shaky Hands” climbed all the way to the top spot on the IAIRA indie music chart), the band promptly took their songs on the road.

2013 saw the release of the the band's third studio recording, entitled RCA Studio B for the historic Nashville, TN studio where it was recorded.

As one of the hardest-working bands in the southeast, THE VEGABONDS have won over thousands of fans by maintaining an exhaustive touring schedule. Hundreds of shows and two European tours later, the band finds itself on the brink of a global takeover. The band’s high-energy, guitar-driven brand of rootsy rock & roll has made them a favorite across the globe, and the next year promises to be a breakout one for the band on a national stage.
